Best Project of Private Residence
About the project
The residence is located in extremely sloped terrain, in the middle of the dense subtropical humid forest in the town of Jumunuco, Jarabacoa. As you approach the house, two stone masses frame the pedestrian entrance bridge, thus marking the passage from the public to the intimate. Immediately upon entry, the user faces the large central atrium, distinguished by an endemic pine tree. The house functions as a 360-degree terrace that revolves around an interior garden, most of the walls have the ability to retract and leave the house open to the dense forest that surrounds it. The modest lines of the architecture evoke the calm of the present forest, thus giving it all the prominence.
